Quiet updated craftsmen house in the beautiful Wallingford / Greenlake neighborhood. Great walking score, one of the best areas to stay in a restful, quiet neighborhood near the lake. Few blocks to best coffeeshops like Zoka, the lake for walking, swimming or biking (3+ mile trail), Woodland Park Zoo, and 1 short block to main bus line to get downtown or to University of Washington. We're only a couple easy blocks to Tangletown which has restaurants, bars, and a little market too.
4 blocks to the farmers market at Meridian Park too! (Summer months)
With a covered front porch and quiet back yard/patio there's ample space to sit outside for breakfast or dinner as you like.
The large upstairs room has a nice queen mattress and is adjacent to a shared bathroom (2nd floor), and also has desk, chair, etc.
The house is a 4 bedroom, 2 bath remodeled craftsmen home with hardwood floors, no pets, box beams, lots of light, porch, etc. We're guys and girls in our mid 20s-30's, professionals.
We keep the place quiet and are pretty busy so if we are around at all it's mostly here to eat or watch a movie in the evenings.
We are fans of composting and sustainability and natural cleaning supplies. Small back yard, patio for a cup of tea and plenty of sunshine on the front patio/porch area. BBQ in back too. Quiet residential neighborhood mostly composed of families and nice homes. Lots of shade so the place doesn't get too hot in the summer either (upstairs rooms cool off nicely by evening with big windows and a fan).
It's probably about a 15 minute ride on the #16 bus (direct) to get downtown, Ballard (#44), or anywhere, or just walk 7 blocks to Wallingford neighborhood for many restaurants, and to Fremont for good music venues and more. The 44 bus gets you right to University of Washington area. It's not the easiest location if you need to get to Capitol Hill a lot by public transit but driving is easy and only like 10 minutes (bus is about 30-40 minutes by 2 busses?).
Smoking is allowed outside on the sidewalk.
Washer dryer available no charge.
Free street parking.
Great coffee, bars, restaurants, but this block is very quiet. Not a major street so little traffic too. Easy free parking right outside.
Yes, less than a block to the bus stop
No drugs, no smoking inside, no loud talking, no unexpected guests, etc.
All pretty standard stuff. Please be mature, quiet, professional, and don't expect any parties or anything here. :-) That said, we're kind hospitable folks and will welcome you to the house and tell you about the neighborhood!
We may ask to see your ID on arrival as per Airbnb guidelines, and we'll have a key available for you. Main house doors should stay locked during the day, and deadbolt at night. Super safe neighborhood, but still. See House Manual for more details.
Nathan was a very gracious, caring host. He was responsive by text to one hiccup upon a late evening arrival and to a sound issue (I'm totally noise sensitive) as soon as I made it known to him. Socially, Nathan made me feel welcome, too. We had a couple of nice chats.
Why a 3? I saw other reviewers found it a quiet place in the evening. I must have hit a strange patch. There were a few issues for me that others didn't experience. (See above, I'm super noise sensitive.) If not for that, I would have given it 4 stars.
We had a fantastic stay at Nathan's house! The room was perfect for my 2 friends and myself as we explored Seattle for 6 days. The neighborhood was very convenient to all things Seattle. Nathan was very helpful and welcoming once we arrived providing insight into the area and recommendations for restaurants and places to go. I highly recommend Nathan's home if you are looking for a comfortable, homey place to stay while visiting the area!
Amazing home just north of downtown- very quiet, safe and clean. The best part was the lovely lake and coffee shops right down the street! Also very friendly and super helpful housemates. I will definitely be staying here again when in Seattle.
Nathan was a good host - we didn't see him or his roommates much, but Nathan was always available for questions, etc. It's a nice house, and the neighborhood is great. We loved walking to Zoka and Mighty- O as well as 45th. I ran to and around Greenlake and just wish I had time to do it again! We propped the fan in the window, and the heat was quickly dissipated, and we actually got cold. I'd recommend their place!
The location of this house can't be beat. If you're looking for a place near the city but not in the city with easy access to different neighborhoods, beautiful places to walk and near a few convenient and charming bars and restaurants this place is a great option. Its a shared space with a shared bathroom but the host and housemates are very friendly and accommodating making it a great place to stay for our short trip to Seattle.
I had a great time staying at Nathan's House.
The room was large clean and well kept. It was my first airbnb experience and I am a fan!
My husband and I very much enjoyed our stay at Nathan's place near Greenlake. It's a very relaxing place and just as calm and low key as his listing indicates.
Coming from a place where everyone gets in a car to go somewhere, I adored being able to walk to the lake and great nearby dining. It a really great neighborhood with plenty of street parking so you can leave your car and go on foot.
Small thing to future guests: the large room is upstairs and gets quite warm during the day with heat waves. It cooled off during the later part of our stay and was quite nice the rest of the time.

I'm a 35yo Arts Center director & venue Designer from Seattle. Mature, quiet, professional, and not home all that often really. I love good local food and can give you lots of great recommendations for healthy options, and of course the best local coffee and beer. I (almost) always know where the good concerts and shows are, sometimes free ones too!
We love sharing the house with people from near or far who have a positive outlook on life and who can respect the space and understand it's a home.
Though we're not around much, sometimes great conversations do spring up in the evening if the schedules align so that's always fun.
Our rooms won't always be available as we typically have long term housemates, but just depends on the time of year and our vacations.
I love to travel and have been so far to Haiti, New Zealand, Australia, Honduras, Mexico, Scotland, Ireland, England, Canada, and around a good bit of the US.
